List of current issues
Disk scheduler optimization failed to run.
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
none
I set scheduler disk optimization to weekly. It is 7 days now, and the scheduler haven't run yet. The last manually run on all my drives is 7/19/2018. Is it not working?

Task Sheduler service is running automatically.

Try reset your window 10 without losing personal data

That will going to remove my 3rd party apps.


For some reason, it does run on my Acer laptop, but only the HDD get defrag and SSD is not even TRIM like seriously? If Windows is going to defrag my HDD, it might as well do the TRIM on my SSD as well. Yes, both my Acer HDD and SSD selected for scheduled optimization.

It'll TRIM when it needs to. You can do it manually, but Windows is smarter than that, it won't attempt to wreck your SSD. I would be less eager to have my SSD defragmented.

he is in much deeper problem than this... the scheduled process is getting terminated either by any 3rd party app or because of reg-file corruption. There is no simple way to fix it as he has huge amount of apps installed, he's short tempered & he messes with his pc more often.

@SumTingWong do you use reg file virtualization?

I tested by set the scheduler to daily, and today August 7 the scheduler defrag my two HDDs but SSD is no touch at all???? So the Scheduler Optimization only for HDD and not SSD?

If you are keen on trimming your SSD then choose a good 3rd party app. As it's quite evident that windows built-in optimizer is failing to do so. Otherwise, is your pc going smoothly?

PC is running smooth, it just the scheduler optimization didn't TRIM my SSD at all in which I thought is supposed to do that.
